Aurora

 Artist Statement:

“I visited Alaska last year and was lucky to spot faint, dancing green lights in the night sky. I suddenly felt tiny and in awe of the universe. This installation, “Aurora”, captures a bit of that magic. I make art with everyday objects and for this project, I discovered mobile phone glassbacks. These glass backs and their everchanging colors were the source of inspiration of this installation. I also want to express how we are living in the digital era now: reflections of visitors appear as they look into the glassbacks. On the other side of the glass, I have used polished stainless steel to highlight visitors’ reflections clearly: visitors become the model, the director and publisher of the clearly reflected image. Visitors are in their own universe now.”
